Spending some quality time with friends, just sitting and talking is enough to enjoy life without spending much money. Once in a while a long trip can be planned or you can go to some expensive bar or pubs to see each other. The following ideas are reasonable and they can be tried with friends on any weekend, birthday, or on friendship day. Have a look and save your bucks!
Movie day in, day out: Movies are one of the factors that binds friends. Most of the old school or college friends still meet each other in movie theaters. Lock yourself in a room and watch those world class movies that you have always thought to watch. It would be a lovely idea of spending time and knowing something thought-provoking. Also get the friendship bands via online shopping as a token of your kinship.
Walkathon around the city: This would be an interesting activity to do seriously. How much you know your city? Suppose you stay in Mumbai, New Delhi, or Kolkata but have never been to Asiatic Society Library, Agrasen ki Baoli, or Victoria Memorial Hall respectively. So, next time you want to spend some interesting time with your friend, have a walk in these lanes. It is always fascinating to know an unknown side of the city you live in.
Picnic in local park: You don’t need to book your seats or worry about the music there if you choose the local park as your picnic spot. On any weekend, call up your friends and gather in the park for an amazing time with food, singing, dancing, and chatting. Play in the swings and talk about the memories of the good old days. Just take care of the cleanliness of the park using dust bin.
Potluck Dinner or Lunch party: This is the most economical of all the ideas I guess. So, just announce that the coming weekend you are going to have a potluck dinner or lunch at your place and all your friend have to be there. They all would come up with some lavish food for sure and you people would just soak yourself into fun and frolic.
Do social work together: This thing can be applied on birthday or friendship day. Social work is always noble and helping the needy is the true virtue of being human. Help the aged people in your society in having a fun day out or just go to YMCA to carry on your social work. Selfless service on birthday or friendship day would bring in a great satisfaction which you cannot get anywhere else. The satisfaction you all friends would get by doing something like this would be the best friendship band that would cement your bond forever.
